The Science Behind The Mantra Aum

Chanting the mantra Aum or Om is a sublime process and, the word is said to express the threefold division of time, which is the waking state, dreaming state and the deep sleep state.
 
Om is considered to be one of the most significant sounds in the universe as it is said to the Source or Universal Consciousness.
  
You must understand that there are things your eyes cannot see, but your innate awareness can sense.

And going after these things provides the highest of knowledge, bliss, and self-realisation.
 
Om is considered to be the sound of creation and said to represent all creation, obtaining the energy that flows through this medium yields boundless benefits.


 Let me guess, this is a bit overwhelming, and you're wondering if any of this is even valid.


Well, although the mantra Om has been chanted for thousands of years, you will be amazed to know that our modern science has agreed with all the therapeutic, psychological and even spiritual benefits that can be derived from this yoga practice.
 
According to an article by the National Center for Biotechnology Information and a report in the International Journal of Yoga, Om chanting is capable of activating structures involved in the relaxation response (such as cingulate cortex, hippocampus and temporal lobes, dorsolateral, prefrontal and parietal cortices).
 
According to the same research, the 'brain activities' observed during the Om chanting process was similar to that recorded during the Vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) treatment used in epilepsy and depression therapy.
 


Now, to the 5 major benefits:


Purifies your environment

Chanting the Mantra Om gives you calmness, peace, and tranquillity within and it does not end there, Om also purifies your ambience, creating positive vibrations to the people and the environment around you.
 

Helps Reduce Stress and Depression

According to a study published in the International Journal of Yoga, Om chanting triggers limbic deactivation which is the part of the brain that's responsible for emotions, stress, motivation, etc.

Chanting Om also helps in reducing the adrenaline levels, making you find peace inside - Which in turn helps with stress and depression.
 

Improves Concentration

You can rest assured that meditation improves concentration, but the chanting of Mantra Om goes beyond that, it enhances focus and gives you deep relaxation.

By chanting Om, you detach yourself from all the stress, anxiety, insomnia, and the matters bothering your mind or causing depression.

You remain focused on just one thing: 'the Sanskrit word', Om and with time this will peak your level of concentration.
